Adrian is Hungry is a Colombian DJ based in Brooklyn, NY.

He’s been collecting and sharing rare tropical and vintage afro-root sounds from Colombia, New York, Peru, Venezuela, the Antilles, Africa and more for the past couple of years in Brooklyn. He has made people dance in places like Lovers Rock in Brooklyn, Meteoro in Barcelona, Brilliant Corners in London, and SoHo House in Manhattan. A traveler and cultural anthropologist at heart, he’s been exploring and rediscovering his cultural identity through music research and curation.

He’s known for making your tia go wild with the tunes that bring her back to her youth, when she would sneak out the window to go dance with her friends from the block, sweat until the tile floor was slippery and celebrate, knowing that tomorrow’s worries were that.


Lxs Brookleen Brxs. is a club de melomanos, a vinyl collective composed of a group of DJs and music collectors from Brooklyn and Queens.

We are a group of friends sharing their stories and experiences, using music as an excuse to get together, to share and grow our community.
